Plant in the Correct Season
To give a new plant the best chance of thriving in your Tucson landscaping, be sure to plant it at an appropriate time. Otherwise, you may waste time and money on a plant that is doomed to die. A professional landscaping company can provide advice regarding the best times to add new plants to your property.
Stay Ahead of Maintenance Needs
Imagine this—your property looks perfect when you leave for your summer vacation. However, upon your return, it is a weed-filled disaster! Weeds and other landscaping problems can crop up quickly. Scheduling regular landscape maintenance services—before your yard gets messy—is always ideal.
Stick to Desert-Adapted Plants
Landscaping in Tucson can be a challenge, especially if you want to add tropical plants. While your Tucson landscaping company can install an irrigation system on your property, you may still want to stick primarily to desert-adapted plants. These plants will have low water needs, helping to preserve water and reduce your utility bills. In addition, these plants are more likely to thrive here than plants that aren’t adapted to a desert climate.
Check Your HOA Policies
Do you live in a neighborhood with a homeowners association, or HOA? If so, it’s important to check your HOA policies before moving forward with a new landscape design. Many HOAs have a list of approved plants for front yards, and sometimes even for backyards. There may also be policies regarding how tall trees on your property can be. Work with a Tucson landscaping company that is familiar with local guidelines and can help you stick to your HOA’s rules for types of plants, tree trimming, and landscape maintenance.
Leave the Big Tasks to the Professionals
You may be tempted to take on certain landscaping tasks yourself. While you may feel confident adding a few small plants or setting an irrigation schedule yourself, bigger tasks should be left to the professionals. When you dig a hole to plant a tree or other large plant, it’s essential to make sure it’s dug properly and won’t damage any underground wires or plumbing. Other landscaping tasks, such as tree trimming and cactus removal, can actually be dangerous without the right knowledge and experience. That’s why you should always have the number of a reliable Tucson landscaping company, such as Action Yard and Tree Service, on hand. We’ll be happy to handle any landscaping project for you, no matter how big or small!
